Discover how our industry leading technology is supporting the future of the medical industry. Our unique insight has helped us provide a service which really makes a difference. Our in house design team can convert your scan data into exactly the product it needs to be.  


Following on from our various micro robotics and drone projects, prosthetic and bionic limits seemed a logical progression, at a less challenging scale. As part of an in house initiative we are developing a robotic hand using a servo set smaller than any other development had currently publicised. We have applied our know how to producing a hand with amazing motion characteristics. This is all done using ready scan data of hands in motion allowing a better understanding of the change in surface geometry through out the extents of movement. 

BDI Precision has developed a unique process for capturing both the top side and sole of a foot simultaneously. This allows a water tight mesh of the entire foot and ankle to be captured in one hit. We can attain mesh cloud data to a volumetric accuracy of 0.3mm with the foot in a loaded position, something no other orthopaedic system on the market is capable of. Scan data can then be used as a template to craft support surfaces as required to improve posture and restore damage to feet and the spine. We developed this technique in conjunction with a client who was limited by the technology currently available to them. The end goal was to automate the capturing process and commercialise a system which provides a faster and more accurate solution to the perfect sole support.

BDI Precision has exactly the right digital tools for the job, and we really know how to use them. Our team draw on software used in 3D animation to produce sculptural parts as well as parametric engineering software for technical tight tolerance parts.


Using a wide range of CAD software allows us to take on the most challenging reverse engineering and sculptural CAD design challenges. These models can then be used to reproduce highly detailed parts by a number of production techniques. If you need NURBS data or you want to develop some specific geometry from your scan data we are very happy to help with that too. 

  • Entirely non invasive 3D capture of any surface.

  • Scan data captured to a resolution of 0.3mm accuracy. 

  • We scan parts as small as a wheel spinner to an entire car. 

  • Scan data processing and conversion to NURBS formats.

  • Data hand over in the formats: .STL .STEP .IGES .X_T.

  • Free initial consultation to discuss your project.

  • Fast turn around on 3D Scanning. 

  • On site and off site services available.


Our technology solutions with save you time and money.

  • Our services is price more competitively than any other 3D scanning service in the south east. 

  • We have a reactive team on standby and can turn your job around on the same day if needed.

  • All of our 3D scanning services are quoted as fixed price jobs.

  • Our team have developed techniques for 3D scanning delicate and complex objects over the last decade. 

  • Customer satisfaction is a must at BDI Precision. If you are not satisfied we will keep working until you are. 

  • Our equipment is fully portable so we can scan objects at location, alternatively you are always welcome at our offices. 

  • We will provide you data in a useable sealed mesh format: .STL .OBJ .STEP .IGES or .X_T. 

  • We can create NURBS models of any scan data to ensure the scan is easy for you to pick up and work with. 

  • Our design team can make changes to your mesh data or start engineering parts directly if required. 

  • if you already have scan data that needs cleaning up we are happy to take a look at that as well.
